Loop In-depth Biography

Discordant, elusive and utterly hypnotic, Loop} conjured a dark, trance-like spell that contrasted sharply with the prevailing British pop music trends of their time. Equal parts the Stooges}, Can} and Hawkwind}, in tandem with fellow travellers Spacemen 3} they resurrected the concept of space-rock for a new era, creating droning soundscapes of bleak beauty and harsh dissonance. Loop} was formed in London in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Robert Hampson}, who at the time of the group's inception claimed to know only four chords; with wife Bex} on drums and Glen Ray} on bass, they debuted with the single "16 Dreams," its raw, feedback-powered sound offering clear evidence of a serious garage fixation. New drummer John Wills} and bassist Neil MacKay} were signed on a short time later, with their arrival heralding a more primal rhythmic foundation; the reconfigured Loop} then issued its 1987 full-length debut Heavens End}, winning acclaim for its densely distorted sound.

The World in Your Eyes}, a collection of singles and B-sides, appeared in 1987; after signing to the Chapter 22} label, Loop} resurfaced in 1988 with the 12" Collision}. In November of that same year the group also released their second full-length, the excellent Fade Out}. Over a year passed before Loop} returned to action with the "Arc-Lite" single, now sporting not only another new label, Situation Two, but also a second guitarist, Scott Dowson}. After issuing their third and finest studio LP, 1990's A Gilded Eternity}, Loop} disbanded; a series of posthumous releases, among them the live Dual} and the BBC sessions collection Wolf Flow}, soon followed. In the wake of the band's demise, its four members split into two camps -- while MacKay} and Wills} reunited in the Hair and Skin Trading Company}, Hampson} and Dowson} went on to form the highly experimental Main}. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
